The manager of Brighton, Oscar Garcia has offered to resign from his current position in the club after having suffered their recent Championship playoff semi-finals to Derby County.
Brighton lost 4-1 during their 2nd leg match but the overall aggregate was even more devastating as Derby County comfortably came out as the winning side with an aggregate score of 6-2.
The 41 years old Spanish coach has told the club his wishes to leave after the Championship club failed on earning a promotion spot. Brighton remains supportive of Garcia as they have given him time to think about his future but it seems like Garcia already has his mind set.
The former Catalonia assistant manager does not have a healthy relationship with the club’s board since the moment when he was appointed as the head coach of Brighton as Garcia does not agree with some of the transfers that have been done such as Ashley Barnes being sold to Burnley and Liam Bridcutt transferring to Sunderland. Both of those players were key members of Garcia’s squad and substantially limited the options that the Spanish coach had at his disposal.
Garcia’s dissatisfaction continued on growing as he believes that the club was held back by the lack of funds available during the previous transfer window.
Things went from bad to worse for Oscar Garcia as he had to cope with an extensive injury list of players which were unable to perform at the initial stages of the season.
If Garcia does in fact resign from his position in Brighton, it still remains unclear as to where he would like to move but West Ham as well as Aston Villa are keeping a watchful eye on him which gives the Premier League a possible destination for Oscar Garcia.
